Tim Cousins is an abstract painter working in APT studios. He references the animal figure and the natural landscape as an aid to his picture making. The location of Deptford has been a continual influence on his work for nearly thirty years, since he first arrived in London as a student at Ravensbourne College of Art. The process of making his work involves both quick, gestural mark-making balanced by careful and consdered adjustments to the image.

In addition to his studio painting he regularly works in the open landscape and initiated the work of the 'Sharing a View' group that has included artists such as Denis Bowen, Cuillin Bantock and Germaine Dolan over the previous eight years. The group continues to show work in different parts of Britain on a yearly basis.

Tim continues to work as a teacher/educator in the field of fine art.
